Class 3 is now available

The six lessons for Class 3 are now available on the course website:

After this week there are 2 weeks to go (classes 4 and 5).

It's good to see so many people having fun with the course!

The mid-course assessment is also now available. Do it when you have finished Class 2 (although it will remain open for the rest of the course). The final assessment will appear during week 5.
 
Occasionally a problem occurs when submitting the assessments, where you click “Submit Answers” and get a blank page. This is a glitch in the Google infrastructure that runs the MOOC, and it is out of our control. Please make a note of your answers before submitting, so that if this happens you can re-submit them without too much pain. Check your Profile for your mark to ensure that it has been recorded.

My goal is to enable you to learn as much as possible from this course, and I recognize that doing the assessments may not be a priority for you. However, our ability to mount follow-up MOOCs will depend on the success of this one as perceived by my University -- and the number of people who complete it successfully will be a key metric. Thus I urge you to do the assessments for my sake, if not your own :-)

cheers, and keep going! Weeks 3 and 4 are the central part of this course.
